    WAVES, BEACHES, And COASTAL EROSIOn Rivers of Sand The material that is contained on the following pages was reprinted from the text entitled Natural Hazards and Disasters by Donald Hyndman and David Hyndman. In their book the focus is on Earth and atmospheric hazards that appear rapidly, often without significant warning.

    This book an attempt to systematically combine the fields of coastal, ocean, harbour, and fishery engineering from an engineering viewpoint backed by hydrodynamics. Understanding the interaction of waves with structures and sediment, and predicting the associated responses of interest, underlie nearly every problem in coastal and ocean engineering. Hawaii beaches are among the most beautiful and exotic in the world. We have long stretches of soft white sand caressed by warm blue water. We also have black sand, green sand, and red sand beaches. We have beaches where waterfalls cascade into the ocean from sea cliffs, and beaches made of millions of tiny, round pebbles.
